Eggless Sesame Seed Cookies Without Raising Agents: How To Make Oatmeal Delicious


Sesame seed cookies without raising agents are going to be a real treat for biscuit lovers. When someone who was never too interested in cookies loves to munch on your whole grain baked beauties, this shows you have done justice to  the recipe.If you are looking for no raising agent recipe of cookies, then this is just another addition to my long list of no baking powder, no baking soda cookies. I am glad I keep experimenting with different combinations.  I rarely try out my own recipes the second time, because I am wearing the thinking cap all the time and want to experiment with next combos. But this sesame seed recipe is just akin to my eggless cashew cookie recipe, because I was getting constant feedback from one friend, whose cookies were failing her following the cashew cookie proces. So I had to go back to my cashew cookies to see if there was something that could be improved in that recipe. The only difference then and here is the type of wet ingredients used - I have substituted half of ghee there with olive oil here.

Looking for sesame seed benefits?Well, I have done a detailed post on sesame benefit and sharing some of them here. 
 This is another one of my cookie recipe without raising agents that was loved by one and all. Just like other cookie posts, let's do a recap on oat benefits and also sesame seed benefits. I will also do a recap on why you should quit maida/all-purpose flour.

Did you know you can reduce your risk of breast cancer with a fiber-rich diet? Did you know a high fat diet makeS you vulnerable to breast cancer? Did you also know that an obese/overweight person is at a high risk of breast cancer?Given the immense number of breast cancer incidences, it is but critical to do your bit to switch to a healthier lifestyle - which is both active and focuses on healthy food.
This is one of the many reasons you find my recipes focusing on eliminating or reducing saturated or trans fat. Since ghee or clarified butter has trans fat and is loaded with saturated fat, I try to combine it with olive oil to reduce the fatty content in my recipes. I never buy ghee and make it at home from scratch.

Try to reduce your consumption of market junk to live a healthier lifestyle, for you are responsible for your own health.





Ingredients
I cup measures 235 ml = 16 tablespoons

1 1/2 cup- powdered oats/oatmeal (I prefer Patanjali oats that are grainier than most other brands in India)
1/2 cup- whole wheat flour
4 tablespoon- ghee (clarified butter- cold - I keep my ghee in the refrigerator for cookies)
4 tbsp- olive oil or any neutral oil
2 tbsp- sesame seeds (I have used white - you may use black too)
nuts of your choice- I have added roasted almonds and pistachio
2-3 tbsp milk/curs
2 tbsp- almond meal
1/2 cup- jaggery powder (more or less depending on your taste buds) (or raw cane sugar - I have stopped buying white sugar so you won't see refined sugar on my ingredients)

How to make no raising agent sesame seed cookies with whole wheat, oatmeal

Sift through both flours and set aside.
Take a deep bowl.
Add cold ghee and oil to it.
Next throw in dried jaggery powder.
Whisk the mix until your arm starts to pain. Yes, you have got to do it. Else whisk until the mix becomes pale in color. Now add 2 tbsp of milk. Whisk again until you cannot spot milk. You may add curd instead of milk.
Since we are using jaggery and it tends to form grits, I ran the mixture in my grinder/mixer after the buttering process just to make sure jaggery dissolves completely. I succeeded in the experiment. Jaggery grits were fully dissolved.
Next stir in the flours - after adding half of the flour mix, use your spatula or even whisker to fold the ingredients.  It will be a complete mes - worry not. Now add the remaining flour mix.
Mix gently and do not knead.
PLEASE NEVER EVER KNEAD COOKIE DOUGH. When you knead flour, gluten formation happens. Gluten gives you chewy cookies. If you want to enjoy crispy bites, never knead cookie dough. Kneading will also disturb the air pockets created in the wet mix and make your cookies dense - just like a cake.
Throw in almond meal, nuts, and sesame seeds and mix gently.
If the mix looks hard at this moment, add the remaining 1 tbsp of milk. If it looks soft or very soft, worry not and proceed to the next step.
Just keep this mix covered aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees for 10 mts. Or preheat the airfryer for 5 mts.
This is an airfryer cookie recipe for me, but you can always bake these sesame seed cookies in an oven or convection.
Roll out the dough -1/4 inch thickness - should be three-four times the typical roti, but not too thick, because the thicker the cookies, the softer they might get from within. So never bake too thick or too thin cookie. You may find the dough a little tough to work with - because of the amount of oats used in my recipes. But if you carefully handle the dough, you are good to go to the next step.
Place on a greased and floured baking tray at an even distance.
Bake/airfry at 170 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Enjoy healthy sesame seed eggless cookies without raising agents.

Instant Chenna Poda Recipe: No Raising Agent Odiya Cheesecake With Jaggery

It's Akshaya Tritiya special today in my home. Hubby loves chenna poda, but I have never dared to attempt this calorie-rich delicacy from his state of Odisha. But since it is Akshaya Tritiya, I wanted to surprise him with his favorite. I have never tasted the delicacy, but still went ahead with it my own way following one pot one shot technique. This means the sweet which otherwise takes anywhere between 30 and40 minutes took only 12-14 mts for me. Additionally, unlike the traditional recipe that uses white sugar, I have substituted it with jaggery powder. The verdict: hubby loved it. Mom loved it too - and really didn't know that it was made only from paneer and semolina - no raising agents. Of course, it was my first trial and I cannot perfect it in one go. But happy me for I could serve him one of his favorites :)

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.


Here are the recipes to make almond milk at home.
